Robin Windsor, the former professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing, passed away at the age of 44.

His latest performance was in Come What May, a production honoring the film Moulin Rouge.

Between 2010 and 2015, Windsor was a contestant on Strictly. He danced with various celebrities, such as Patsy Kensit, Anita Dobson, Lisa Riley, and Deborah Meaden from Dragons’ Den. He also partnered with Alison Hammond from the Great British Bake Off in the 2015 Christmas special and Susanna Reid in the 2011 Children in Need special.

Craig Revel Horwood, known for his strict judging, referred to Windsor as a close companion. He praised Windsor for being a kind, gentle, honest, funny, and caring person, and expressed gratitude for knowing and collaborating with him.

Susanna Reid, co-host of Good Morning Britain, became emotional while announcing the death of dancer Windsor on air. In 2011, Reid had danced with Windsor on a Children in Need special. She apologized and handed over to her co-host Ed Balls as she struggled to continue reading the news.

“Robin exuded a larger-than-life presence. Dancing with him was when I first fell in love, both with him and with dancing,” she said after a short pause. “I truly adored him. His personality was simply remarkable. There was a unique charm to him.”

The dance production Burn the Floor released a statement expressing their sadness over the passing of Robin “Bobby” Windsor, a longtime member of their team. Windsor danced with them for 20 years, performing on Broadway, the West End, and various other locations around the world.

The company posted a picture of Windsor performing on stage alongside dancer Jessica Raffa. The caption praised Windsor’s skills and described him as an integral part of the company’s vibrant, bold, and sensual image. His talent, attitude, energy, and personality played a significant role in establishing Burn the Floor’s reputation on stage. His departure has left a permanent void in our hearts, but our cherished memories of him will never fade.

According to his website, the dancer who specializes in Latin and ballroom styles started dancing at the young age of three after being enrolled in Ipswich for classes by his parents. He has since competed in multiple domestic and international championships for England.

In 2001, he became part of the cast of the show Burn the Floor and traveled around the globe for a decade, including a nine-month stint on Broadway.

Additionally, Windsor has made appearances on Dancing with the Stars Australia and So You Think You Can Dance in the Netherlands. They have also provided choreography assistance for the Australian edition of So You Think You Can Dance and have experience as a motivational speaker.
